GPs can access a new provincial tool that helps doctors understand what the patient medical home (PMH) means in the context of their practices. The GPSC’s Practice Characteristics Matrix takes a closer look at the 12 attributes of the PMH and what they could look like at the practice-level. It describes the attributes using a series of characteristics, and includes information about what a transition toward a PMH might entail.
These characteristics provide a reference point for GPs to reflect on their own practice experience and identify where they are in their move toward the patient medical home model of care. The matrix was created based on extensive consultation and research to ensure the tool is relevant to family practice in rural, remote, and urban settings in BC.
